Last night was Senior Night at the Pavillion. That meant Blue Man and his friends had some trouble getting tickets. I had a ticket transferred to me, but Blue Man still had no one to go with. So I decided to take the night off and get hammered in my room and enjoy the game from the couch. As the second half got going I started to get a little worried. At the 11 minute mark, Rutgers was up 54-52. Around that same time I discovered that another friend had a ticket, that's when we decided something needed to be done. Villanova has never lost a game that Blue Man has attended, so to make sure we locked down the win my friend and I sprinted from West to the Pavillion and got there with 7:56 left in the game. At that time we were up by 6 and Blue Man had arrived, there was no way we were going to lose this game. Sure enough, Villanova never looked back and cruised to a 82-72 win. Scottie had 21, Corey stokes had 17, and the Pavillion gave the Seniors a great send off, ending the game with chants of "Thank You Seniors".
Villanova travels to Syracuse on Sunday, and while Blue Man won't be making the trip, I have a good feeling about this one after dropping over 100 on them last time. Let's hope we can pull of a huge road win and move up in the rankings.
